   My research is on the mechanisms of urine concentration, and more specifically, on the regulation of urea transporters. Currently I am working on: (1) the molecular mechanism(s) of urea transporter UT-A1 trafficking between subcellular compartments, as well as trafficking to cell membrane, particularly the mediation of these trafficking through interactions with small proteins like GTPase Rab14, Arf5 and 14-3-3 protein; and (2) ubiquitin modulation of UT-A1 mediated by E3 ligase MDM2 and ubiquitin specific protease 24 (USP24).
